Over the past 12 years, Robert has officiated more than a thousand weddings in his signature entertaining manner - but that’s not to say he doesn’t inject moments of romance and sentiment, too - they’re very well-balanced ceremonies.

Indeed, Robert’s customised ceremonies are a combination of emotion and playfulness, with each engaging wedding guests from start to finish.

This includes a rehearsal ceremony, unlimited phone and email communication, and a Bluetooth speaker for your ceremony music, and those are just some of the marvellous offerings you can expect from this authorised celebrant. 

“We couldn't have chosen anyone better to be our celebrant on our wedding day. Robert really takes the time to make sure the ceremony is best suited to your wishes and takes the time to really understand your relationship. We got so many people coming up to us on the day, telling us how amazing Robert was, and we couldn’t agree more. He made everyone laugh, cry, and just really enjoy the ceremony, there definitely wasn’t a dull moment. We couldn’t recommend anyone else to have married us on our wedding day.” Emily

We honestly cannot recommend Robert highly enough! He is extremely personable, and put so much time and thought into our ceremony - it was better than I ever could have hoped for. His manner was warm and very calming, and he was incredible with helping to plan the ceremony right down to the smallest of details (for example, where he was positioned or standing during key moments, or what colour tie / suit to wear to complement our bridal party). By far the best celebrant we spoke to, and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone planning their wedding ceremony.

Thank you Amelia I was so privileged to lead you and Bryce through what was an amazing day for all.

We cannot rate our celebrant Robert Simmons high enough! Robert had the ability to make you feel like you have known him for a long time, which made our experience feel very personal. We enjoyed all of our meetings with Robert as he is a nice, kind, genuine person, who is professional, friendly and dependable. Robert put together the most amazing ceremony for us. It was the right amount of love, fun, seriousness and warmth. Robert streamlined the legal paperwork and provided one form to complete that he sent to Birth, Deaths, Marriages on our behalf, so we could get the Name Change process rolling. A lot of my married friends were never offered this service from their celebrant. Yet another reason to hire Robert! We were thrilled with Robert and we think you will be too.

Daniel and Jayde, thank you for your beautiful words, Kirra Hill was certain alive with the sound of music, and your love for each other. What a great day we had!

Having Robert as our celebrant was one of the best choices we made for the day. He is such a key reason why the day was so great. From the moment we made the decision to go ahead with Robert he made everything so simple and easy for us and did it all with a smile and a fun attitude. He was always available to ask a question or help with any paper work that needed doing. On the day we couldn't have asked for anymore, Robert delivered such a fun and lovely ceremony and was such a calming influence. Even when a few issues arose just prior to the ceremony he really helped sort it out and kept things on track. We couldn't have been happier and we're so glad we had Robert to officiate our wedding.

Robert was fantastic! He made everything stress free! We opted for a ceremony rehearsal which helped get rid of some nerves the day before. He provided a wonderful ceremony and then continued to MC our reception. All of our guests raved about how great he was!

Robert was fantastic! Very down to earth and relaxed, which is exactly what we wanted on the day. Super organised and very easy to plan with. He had everything under control leading up to the wedding as well so we didn't have to stress about anything. Would highly recommend!

We were very lucky to have Robert as our celebrant for our wedding, we wanted someone who was a reflection of us, and didn’t want anything too formal. Robert was the absolute best choice, from the first meeting he put us at ease and completely understood what we wanted. Our ceremony was absolute perfection and delivered so well with plenty of laughs along the way. If you are wanting someone who will deliver an amazing heartfelt ceremony Robert is the one! He is also a very stylish dresser, because that is also very important! 😉

Hello, John and I knew from the time we met Mr Robert Simmons that he was the sophisticated stylish wedding celebrant we were looking for. In stepping us through the marriage process Robert gave us confidence that our wedding would run smoothly and offered valued suggestions. We are grateful to Robert for ensuring our legal documents were correct and our Wedding certificate was available to us soon after our wedding day. Robert personalised our ceremony by being aware of our personalities, families and their involvement in our wedding as we had our grandchildren in our ceremony and son in law as MC. Our guests mention how impressed they were by Robert and how wonderful our wedding flowed. John and I are over the moon as Robert ensured that our ceremony was relaxed, fun and memorable and of course would highly recommend Robert to everyone. A very sincere thank you Robert

To sum it up, Robert is the man you need. He had such amazing communication throughout the entire process from the initial enquiry, postponing the wedding and even after the wedding. Guests complimented his ceremony and loved his personality as much as we did! He always made sure we were okay and he went above and beyond his job, even fixing my dress mid-ceremony. If you want a celebrant who is organised, brings a positive vibe to the wedding and helps to alleviate the pre-wedding stress, then Rob is your man. You won't regret it! Plus, his suits are great and look amazing in your wedding day photos!

Robert was easy to work with and very affable. He was flexible and helpful in creating and submitting our vows. Our video call prior to the ceremony (thanks COVID-19!), was easy. He made the whole ceremony easy for us!

Robert was amazing and very fun and friendly to work with. Not only did he help write a very beautiful ceremony personalised just for us, but he also agreed to be our MC for the night and kept our schedule on track and everyone having a good time. He was warm and engaging and funny and welcoming. All our guests had a great time and we received so many comments about how lovely he was and what a great job he did. Thanks heaps Robert! You are awesome

You can't find a better celebrant than Robert, he is a lovely soul and the first thing all our wedding guests said was what a lovely celebrant we had. He made everyone relaxed and made our special day just beautiful, absolutely recommend to anyone

16 Aug 2019

Robert was great. He has a really calm demeanor and is light hearted. We loved how laid back he was, thats what we wanted. And to top it off he made a nice effort to dress in orange for us for our wedding, we didn't even ask, he knew that was the theme and made the effort and he looked fantastic. We would recommend Robert to anyone who needs a celebrant.
